It is not enough just to manage, undertake or lead.
Here we train the future owners, managers and founders of the restaurants of the 21st century.
In the coming years the restaurant sector will experience a tsunami of continuous changes that only those able to anticipate and adapt to them will be able to survive. Most of the ventures of the sector are based on a vision that can at times be unprofessional. However, the market is evolving at a different pace and towards new economic, social and conceptual paradigms that affect business models, demanding greater business knowledge and a sound vision for each restaurant.
Only those who operate businesses looking to the future and are able to adapt their business models to the issues that may arise will be the only ones with a strong probability of success.
The Master's Degree in Restaurant Management (MDR) deals precisely with these changes and prepares you to visualize, take stock of and act on the challenges of the future. It teaches you to observe, measure and adjust what is really important in order to react in advance ahead of others, strengthening your edge over your current and future competitors.
The Master's Degree in Restaurant Management (MDR) is a comprehensive programme consisting of three combined modules: Strategic Management, Executive Restaurant Management, and the choice between Operational Restaurant Management or F&B and Executive Chef), each is a postgraduate course in itself, which you can study independently and your choice to lead all facets of any restaurant business. Each postgraduate course lasts 3 months and runs once a year. You can take them in any order you like, and it is not even necessary for you to do them consecutively.
